The charming colonial city of Cartagena - perched on Colombia’s Caribbean coast - is bursting at the seams with quaint cobblestone streets, amazing architecture and cool bars and cafes. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1984, the city invites you to take a trip back in time as you admire the colourful facades of the 16th and 17th century buildings and enjoy a rose-gold sunset from the city’s ancient ramparts. During your Cartagena holidays, explore on foot or live like a local as you hop on the back of a brightly coloured 'chiva' (traditional bus) and visit some of the city’s most famous spots
including the Inquisition Palace - which currently serves as a museum showcasing historical artefacts - the iconic Torre del Reloj (Clock Tower) and canary-yellow Plaza de los Coches. With warm temperatures and a cooling sea breeze, Cartagena is wonderful to visit all year round meaning you can enjoy this warm and lively city no matter the season.
